Share

In the heart of Al-Salts old city, you will observe a local woman who is an expert Hadab maker as she tasseles the Sides of the “Kouffiyeh” - traditional scarf worn by Jordanians and Arabs. That will give you insight on how to make a sample of Hadab.

A bookmark that captures your Hadab experience will be made and kept as a souvenir of your cultural experience.

You can try on traditional (Khalaga) dress, other cultural clothing, as well as take unforgettable photos, all as a part of the experience.
